Simple resize and rotate events for any sprite, quick and easy event sheet that you can use for your own projects.
• Hi, I have a problem where when I tell something to rotate toward angle instead of rotating it will just snap to the angle instantly. What am i doing wrong? thanks for any help people.

• How are you using the action? On keypress, touch, etc.

The degree is how much it moves each time that Event is triggered. For example if:

One KeyDown Z

------->rotate 1 degree towards 270

This means, while I hold down the Z key the object will rotate 1 degree per tick towards 270.

• I have it like this:

Condition: Sprite -> Land=2

Action: Sprite -> Rotate Clockwise: Anglediff(270, Fighter.Angle).

Also I tried:

Condition: Sprite -> Land=2

Action: Sprite -> Rotate Toward angle: Anglediff(270, Fighter.Angle) degrees toward (270)

Condition: Sprite -> Land=2

Action: Sprite -> Rotate toward angle: (1) degree toward (270)

• Hmm, that bottom one should work. Do you have a sample capx?

• I'm having a similar problem. I've tried tackling it several ways and seem kind of stuck.

Ideally, I want a limited-rotating turret to slowly move towards either 20-degrees left or right as long as either left or right arrow are held down.

My first attempt:

Turret.Angle = 270

On Left Arrow is down, Rotate Turret 5 degrees toward 250

On Right Arrow is down, Rotate Turret 5 degrees toward 290

In practice, what happens is as long as I hold left, the turret snaps to 265 (270-5) and stays there... so basically it's only updating that condition one tick when Left is pressed, rather than constantly while it's held down.

... I tried tackling it this way:

Turret.Vector = 0

Turret Angle = 270+Vector

On Left Arrow down, set Vector = -20

On Right Arrow down, set Vector = 20

Every Tick, rotate Turret 10 degrees toward Turret Angle (270+Vector)

Still no dice, it's rotating 10 degrees either direction only, so it's still updating only once. I just started using Construct 2 this week, so maybe there's something I'm missing about how to get this to update every tick?

• Wait. I found my problem.

Earlier on in the sheet when I spawned the turret item, I think I set its angle to 270 effectively locking it in place. Will check.

*edit* Yes, this was my problem. Changed the spawning logic to work once, instead of every tick fixed this.

Did you multiply the angle in the degrees field with dt(deltatime)?

This should make a smooth rotation measured in degrees per second.

It looks something like so:

Sprite->Rotate 180*dt degrees toward OtherSprite.Angle
